Getting Intimate With Actress Ava Capri

ctor and model Ava Capri has been dating actor-writer-director Alexis G. Zall for five years. In this disarmingly sweet FRONTPAGE story, we ask Zall to interview her longtime friend and partner.

I meet Ava in the living room we share. She wears butter-yellow Vans shorts I got her as a summertime gift so she could bring her noteworthy brand of androgyny poolside, a cream T-shirt with two cats that says “A love worth having is worth sharing,” and a trucker hat with an image of a deer that says “Buck Fever.”

Two nights ago, there was a sharp CRACK as our friend’s head slammed into Ava’s nose whilst bobbing for apples. Luckily, she walked away with nothing but a perfectly centered, albeit tender, vertical cut down her nose. Aside from going to two different doctors the next day to ensure the safety of one of her greatest assets — her face — we also made a trip to the drug store to buy three different types of stylish Band-Aids, ranging from tie-dye to panda print, to ensure that this injury would not deter, but enhance, her signature style of boyish good looks meeting the classic beauty of a ’40s movie star.

ALEXIS G. ZALL: So we’re sitting here in our living room on our overly-sized couch.

AVA CAPRI: Massive.

ZALL: Do you like the couch? Are you over it?

CAPRI: I love the couch, and I hate the couch. You know how I feel about the couch. We have the most comfy couch in the world, but it’s also too wide and deep, so you can’t really sit on it like a normal person. It swallows you whole.

ZALL: You have to surrender to it.

CAPRI: It can be a little too seductive. If we had a normy couch, maybe my life would be easier. But it’s nice when we have people over.

ZALL: In what ways do you think it would make your life easier?

CAPRI: It’d be easier to get on and off, just physically. [Laughs]

ZALL: We spend a lot of time sitting and talking on this couch. But there’s a different energy right now because we have a third in the room.

CAPRI: Which is —

ZALL: The fact that I’m interviewing you.

CAPRI: Oh, yeah. There is a third. We love a third.

ZALL: What do you think is the difference between our energy normally as a couple, and with another presence in the room?

CAPRI: With a camera? Or the concept of the public?

ZALL: The public.

CAPRI: That’s very interesting, and that’s something we’ve talked about since we first started dating. Before, I never thought about it, because I didn’t have to. When we first started dating, you were a little weird about not wanting to share our relationship with the public at large. And at first, I was like, “Is she embarrassed of me? What’s going on?”

I expressed that, and you were really honest, and I remember you cried, and you explained how, especially in your industry at that time when you were doing YouTube, strangers would attach themselves to these couples, and you knew so many couples that were together and then broke up and got kind of tortured by their past.

ZALL: Yeah.

CAPRI: So for years we were very, not secretive, but cautious in protecting our relationship. Now, as stable as our relationship has become, we’re not afraid of that anymore. You’re also not a YouTuber anymore, and that is an interesting evolution itself.

ZALL: We’re five years into our relationship. How much are you conscious of what to keep private and what to keep public? Or is it not something that you think about very much?

CAPRI: I don’t think about it very hard. I have a historical instinct to not flaunt our relationship, not to signal that it belongs to anyone but us. But I’ve grown to appreciate the honesty of not hiding it and the sweetness that comes with letting people enjoy and witness a really sweet queer love. I am proud of that.

ZALL: Me too. So why are you in Highsnobiety?

CAPRI: That’s a great question. [Laughs] I was just involved in a film that did quite well, Do Revenge. I guess Willa [Bennett, Highsnobiety’s Editor-in-Chief] asked me to do it and I was incredibly down is also the honest answer. Do you know why?

ZALL: You’re a successful actress, up-and-coming as they say, and an incredibly hot model, which we’ll get into later.

CAPRI: Thank you.

ZALL: I think that combination is very exciting.

CAPRI: Thank you.

ZALL: We’ve obviously talked a lot about the making of Do Revenge. But now it’s out, and that’s a totally different beast. If you watched Do Revenge having not been involved, what do you think would grab you most about the film?

CAPRI: My initial thoughts were that I really just liked the movie when I saw it. Obviously I liked the major queer storylines, and how funny and big and campy it is.

ZALL: So when you think about queer representation in film… do you see it as something with an end goal, or is it something you just enjoy as a consumer because you connect with it?

CAPRI: Oh, shit. I think I enjoy it as a consumer. I really enjoy it as an artist and someone who wants to be involved in storytelling, and am so grateful and relieved that I live in a point in history where I get to be involved in that.

I know when I watch something and there’s queer representation that feels real and fun, I enjoy it so much. I love when girls kiss. I’m simple, I love that. I love when they’re given three-dimensional characters in scripts and not used as sidekicks only. I seek media that involves it. It’s the same way that anyone of any particular group enjoys and seeks out representation that makes them feel seen and understood.

ZALL: I ask that question because as an out queer person, especially during press, I get asked a lot and I feel like you got asked a lot what queer representation means to you.

CAPRI: Constantly. Very generic question.

ZALL: Exactly. Does it have to be…

CAPRI: No, it doesn’t have to mean anything.

ZALL: Does it have to be so deep in order to be worthwhile?

CAPRI: You know what I love also? Can it just be hot sometimes? And I love it being deep when it feels purposeful.

I think, obviously, in the past a lot of queer representation has been objectifying in a way just to be sexual. But we’re past a point where our queer characters can now be evil, they can be mean, they can be imperfect, they can be all these things. They can just be hot. So much is being made right now where I feel like we’re not like, “Oh, we need this one type of representation.” The more the merrier.

ZALL: In 2022, we are reckoning with a lot of things in terms of queer media. There’s a lot of conversations happening about who can play queer characters and whether it should be cast authentically, how much that matters? There’s also conversations about if actors owe us coming out if they’re playing queer roles, how much is owed to the public, and how much is owed to queer people as almost reparative measures. What is it like to be an out actor in 2022?

CAPRI: Interesting. I don’t think about it very often like that. But if I were forced to in an interview… [Laughs] It’s a relief. I’m so glad that if I take on a role that is queer, or bi, or whatever it is, that I don’t have to then reckon with what do I owe people. You know what I mean?

ZALL: Yeah.

CAPRI: And if I play a straight role, I’m not afraid of that. I’m just in my truth. And also, I don’t believe that anyone owes coming out. For me it’s like… it’s actually easy to be out. It’s so obvious, because I’m, well, in love, and that’s not something that I want to hide. That’s my reality and it’s visible. I’m so grateful that it’s always been obvious to me that, “Oh, this is the truth. Let’s just go with the truth.”

ZALL: I feel like coming out is one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever given myself. When I started my career, I was an actor as well, but I was also a personality. I felt like I couldn’t proceed honestly with my work without coming out. I’m, in a way, incredibly grateful for that, because there is a huge difference for public-facing people of it not being a secret versus being out and standing in that.

CAPRI: Yes, there is. It’s everyone’s right to do as they please in that space. I love that I don’t have to think about it. I’m grateful that in the queer roles that I’ve done, when people look up my online presence, people can see that I’m visibly queer and I’m proud of that.

ZALL: Gay pride, as they say. You have it. What role does your queerness play in your personal style?

CAPRI: A ton. When I came out, even when I first started hooking up with girls right before I came out, I immediately had a vibe shift in clothes. It felt like I was allowed to do whatever I wanted. It’s like how we talk about relationships and queerness; it’s unsubscribing from the things that you have to do or how things should be. Once I freed myself in that way, I was like, “Oh, I can truly do whatever I want.”

ZALL: My relationship with my body and with the way that I looked got significantly better when I realized I didn’t like men in that way. We’re taught as teen girls, as women in general, to gear ourselves towards what men find attractive. And when I realized I didn’t have to, and also that the things I found attractive in women were not necessarily what I was taught was hot, it was very freeing. Would you define freedom as what makes style queer?

CAPRI: I think queer vibes exist beyond clothes. It’s an energy thing. And when people allow their clothes and their energies to align, we can call that queer fashion. It’s not foolproof, but there’s a little something that you can pick up on.

ZALL: Queer people have an extra touch of magic.

CAPRI: I think so, too.

ZALL: A photographer recently called you handsome.

CAPRI: It was Paris Mumpower. I’ve recently done press shoots for Do Revenge, and there have been a few women that I’ve shot with who I feel like they really get it. Right away Paris got it. We were shooting the first look, and she puts the camera down for a second and says, “Don’t take this the wrong way, but you’re so handsome.” And I was like, “I love that.” She just gets it. I felt very seen and understood.

Photography is so intimate, and obviously it isn’t sex, but there can be a charge in that connection. You’re making something together. If there’s a photographer that is like, “Oh, I don’t get you,” then it’s going to be hard to find that synergy.

ZALL: What do you think are the similarities and the differences between acting and modeling?

CAPRI: They’re deeply different. We were talking to a photographer who lives in Berlin recently about how she used to do more high fashion, and now she’s been shooting actors, and she’s noticed that they model differently.

ZALL: She was saying that sometimes actors are uncomfortable being seen as themselves. I would say one of your biggest strengths is how much of yourself shines through in your work.

CAPRI: Thank you. The modeling I’ve done recently has been amazing because it’s as myself. I realize that I just really like it. It’s a fun way to feel hot.

ZALL: What does hot mean to you?

CAPRI: It’s so subjective. In the last five years, the types of people we are “allowed” to find hot has expanded so much and it is much more honest. That’s always existed. Being attracted to people of the same gender, people of no gender. You know what I mean?

ZALL: When do you feel hot?

CAPRI: It’s pretty indescribable, but just feeling in my body. The few times I’ve modeled recently, I’m in beautiful designer clothing. Like a Thom Browne suit or a Gucci trench coat. Clothes that I don’t wear every day. I usually wear thrifted clothes and trucker hats. So it is very different than me.

But they are clothes that make me feel alive. I never understood why people spent so much money on clothes, and now I’m starting to get an appreciation for certain designers or brands. I’ve been able to wear so many really interesting pieces, and it is this tangible art, like tangible pop culture almost.

I’ve always felt like I’ve had style, but I think my interest in the fashion world at large and appreciation for it is just getting started. I’m probably late to the party, but something I’m appreciating about fashion is the underlying queer tastemaker-ness of it all. Gay people are the pioneers in fashion because gay people liberated themselves from this idea of gendered interests.

ZALL: Well, I was going to ask what you see next for style and fashion, but it sounds like if gay people are the tastemakers of the future, the future is what you’re doing now.

CAPRI: Whoa. I like that. Maybe the rest of society’s next thing is what queer people are fucking innovating right now. It’s the present for us. And then it drips down. Queer people are daring and fashion is daring. Those two things go together — the disregard of tradition and about going one’s own way and following one’s own instinct.

ZALL: How was being interviewed by your partner?

CAPRI: I loved it. There’s not a lot we talked about that we probably haven’t touched on before. But in general, it’s so nice to talk to someone who I respect so much as an artist, a writer, a fashionable hot person, and a queer icon.

ZALL: Thank you, Ava. I love you.

CAPRI: I love you, too.

ZALL: All right. Bye to you, third.

For Ava Capri, acting is all about diving into the character — what makes them tick, what’s hiding below the surface, and what isn’t being said or described in the script. With projects like Love, Victor, Embattled, and the forthcoming Little Rituals, it’s clear that Capri seeks out roles that both elevate a script and show a new side to who she is as an actress. Her latest flick is Netflix’s Do Revenge in which she portrays “villain” Carissa, a change of pace from the characters she’s played prior. If you’re nostalgic for 90s films like Jawbreaker and Heathers, this is a movie for you. The plot seems simple — two girls team up to get revenge on their tormentors — but, like with everything Capri touches, there’s something bubbling underneath the surface that isn’t overt.

After pulling her away from petting sheep in Oregon while on vacation, Schön! chats with Ava Capri about her beginnings as child actor, what attracts her to a script, working on Do Revenge, and more.

Your first acting credit was back in 2015 with Parks and Recreation. How would you say you’ve grown as an actress between then and now?

Getting that [role] was at the height of my obsession with Parks and Rec. I remember I was taking UCB classes at the time and was obsessed with Amy Poehler and the whole SNL women scene. It was a single line that I yelled to Amy’s character in a town hall meeting [laughs]. Since then, the size and influence of the roles I’ve been able to do has been crazy. That was a great job to ‘start’ on. I just had such an amazing time. I remember I got a call from my managers and they said I was in the running and on the day the director would make the final selection. I booked it and then found out Amy Poehler was directing the episode. It was a super special moment for me.

I’m obsessed with her. Her book is so good. Everything that she touches is golden. I’m assuming you were able to witness her work both behind the camera and on-screen?

Her book was just coming out around the time we filmed that, too. She’s really nice. This funny thing happened when we were sitting in the makeup trailer. It was pre-book coming out, so you can imagine she’s a very busy woman. A long time passed and she looked over at me and I had been sitting there for a long time. She laughs, which makes me laugh, and then we’re both laughing. She introduces herself and you could tell she was in business mode. When we were rehearsing she was down to improv with me if I wanted to. I felt like I was living my dream.

I read you did a bit of acting when you were younger but didn’t pick it back up again until after high school. What caused the sudden urge to get back into it?

When I was a child, it was always a thing I would do for fun and I was good at it. My parents never wanted me to be a child actor so they didn’t push it too much. As I got older, I was doing a few commercials and got back into it. I played competitive soccer for a long time and was getting burnt out. At first, I just did commercials to make some money, but then transitioned into wanting to do television and movies. It’s a whole different ball game. I fell in love with the first acting class that I went to. Although I’ve been a child actor it feels like I hadn’t discovered acting until I was much older, once I got to learn about creating a character and emotion.

Is there anything specific that attracts you to a script? I know if I got the script for Do Revenge, knowing Jennifer Kaytin Robinson was involved would be enough for me. Her show Sweet/Vicious is one of the greatest shows ever.

She’s a genius and Someone Great is one of the best movies ever. I watched Sweet/Vicious a bit. Jen is always creating stuff that isn’t exactly what you see. Do Revenge pays homage to so many types of movies and genres, but it’s a modern take on it all. With the Do Revenge script, in particular, I love that the character feels like they have a lot going on underneath. I seek out characters that are multi-dimensional. I auditioned for Eleanor first and the process took so long. I remember hearing they really loved my tape and stuff, but offered Eleanor to Maya Hawke which makes complete sense. The producers liked me enough to keep me in mind and many months later reached out for this other role. There are projects that have a certain ‘it’ factor and as soon as I read the script, it had ‘it’ factor all over it.

It was inspired by Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train, were you familiar with it prior?

I was! I took a Hitchcock film class when I went to college briefly. We watched 15 movies and that was one of them. And like, we watched like 15 Hitchcock movies and like, that was one of them. I feel like themes from that have played out in different films but I love how Jenn did it for Do Revenge.

Carissa is a different character than people you’ve played in the past. What was it like fleshing her out?

She’s a fun character to play because of her dimensions to her. The perception of the audience is a really fun and interesting thing to play with. When you rewatch the film, all of the characters and the plot are like a whole new experience. Carissa is really smart, she knows what’s going on. Not everything is black and white despite her being painted as the victim.

What piece of advice would you give to Carissa from you, Ava?

I’d tell her to hang in there. She went through a lot. I had to go through what she experienced. I would say there’s a lesson in how your actions affect other people. That’s the main thing to remember. The small things have an impact on people and it’s hard to run from that.

Is there a scene or a moment from filming that really sticks out in your mind?

The entire summer was like a dream. We wrapped up a year or so ago. I just saw Talia who plays Gabbi. We were hanging out on what was our wrap day last year, which was nice. It was just a crazy time, a bunch of hot people gathered in one place in Atlanta [laughs]. When we were filming the ring ceremony scene, we all stayed up so late and ended up having a dance party just offset. We were all so goofy. We finished filming in Miami, just shooting the exteriors, and we were just on the beach having a vacation.

Do you kind of look at your films as a snapshot of a moment in time?

I definitely think so. In this film especially because we all became so close, that chemistry you see in the film is completely made from spending so much time together. It was during the rise of Delta and as filming was happening we had to get more and more insular to protect ourselves. We just got so close. When I watch it now, it brings me back to that time. It was a pure summer camp experience. In Miami, we all stayed at one hotel and the top floor was just our cast. It had these balconies that you could jump off onto this turf roof. Everyone would leave their doors unlocked so everyone would be running into each other’s rooms. Literally summer camp.

I read that you were recently obsessed with the film Cha Cha Real Smooth which I also loved. What are some other things inspiring you as of late — books, movies, music?

I just started A League of Their Own and I love it. Abby Jacobson’s whole trajectory has been incredible to watch. I love that she made the show, I think it’s so perfect for her. I think it’s so perfect for her and shows her off as an actor because she made it for herself, you know what I mean? I was thinking about that while watching it. It’s so fun and gay.

Lastly, if you could manifest something for yourself this year, what would it be?

I really want to work on a project that I’m really excited about with people that I think are really wonderful. I want to work with people that I’m inspired by.

Are you interested in writing your own projects?

I feel shy about talking about it because my girlfriend is like a real writer. Sometimes I get intimidated but I actually have something that I’m writing with a friend right now. It’s in the early stages, but I definitely one day I would definitely love to direct. All in time because right now I have the acting itch I need to scratch.
